About

Director's Statement by Nick+Lexie

Making a western, as our feature film debut, was really important to us. The American West was a really adventurous melting pot of diversity. People were coming from all over the world in search of fame, fortune, or a new beginning. It’s this time period and this genre that has allowed us to tell these stories in new and exciting ways. It's bold. It's brash. It's got a lot of heart. You've never seen a Western like this before. 

The Directors
